sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (gwen smiling by hermitsoul)
A quick note to the lovely person who will be making something for me for the Informal Twitter Podfic Exchange (#itpe): Thank you for doing this! I like all kinds of stories and podfics so I hesitated to write anything, since I don't really have much to say beyond what I put in my signup tweet, but anyway since everybody's doing it...some things I like )

Thank you for your card, [ profile] rubynye, and thank you for your present, [ profile] baranduin! I have hung them both up to decorate the new place. ♥ ♥

Thanks to folks who commented on my previous post to let me know that Parks and Rec gets better. I just have one more episode to go in the first season and am looking forward to more positivity and teaminess. Since I haven't wanted to pay too much attention to the season 1 episodes I've also gotten some weightlifting done while it was on. Yay multitasking and tingly muscles! *flexes*

While looking around on Netflix the other night I discovered that Sports Night is also available on instant streaming. I've never seen that show and I've heard lots of good things, so maybe I'll try it after I finish Parks and Rec.

I really enjoyed reading [ profile] wanderhomeagain's big bang fic What You Mean to Me (Right Now), a lovely 38K Arthur/Merlin romance. The characters in this were a couple years older than the students I'm more used to seeing in modern AUs and they felt very real and familiar to me. And the way they dealt with their problems, including Arthur having an amputated leg, also seemed very believable and not over-the-top as sometimes happens. It's also nice, after reading so many short PWPs over the summer, to read a few of these long fics where the relationships really have time to develop and the porn feels very...well earned, I guess, by the time you get there. :)

Really I am barely dipping my toes in the [ profile] paperlegends fics. There's just so much and I'm not especially in a reading phase right now. :/ But I am really impressed with how much the authors have accomplished, and I am grateful to the folks who are posting recs.

I have had a week. FRIDAY has not meant this much to me in a long time. Yes I am tipsy in the late afternoon okay.

Anyway here are some things:

-I have only finished one [ profile] paperlegends fic, but it was awesome. Destiny That Darkly Hides Us by [ profile] nympha_alba is a wonderful long Arthur/Merlin fic takes place before and during WWI but in an AU where magic exists and is illegal. The language in this is fancier than what I usually like to read but it won me over pretty quickly with the LONGING and the ACHING. It is great.

-I am in the middle of reading The Ivy Crown by [personal profile] briar_pipe and it is also great. It is the AU-from-the-end-of-season-one fic you've been waiting for, full of plot and characters from Arthurian legend and Morgana being the strong, intelligent, and flawed center of her own story.

-Speaking of ladies and fic, my fellow Merlin femslasher has convinced me to join [ profile] pornspiration, a comm for getting better at writing porn that will be kicking off tomorrow. Membership is moderated but they welcome people from any fandom and level of experience, and the mods would especially like to invite femslash fans to join in. There will be lots of different kinds of posts but if you're like me and you don't want people to critique your writing then it's okay to sit out those rounds and just play along in other stuff. It looks like it will be a fun and upbeat place and I hope I can find time to participate and I wish it were on Dreamwidth but hey.

AO3 Feelings and Opinions )

-Last week I finally made a good start on my podfic project for [community profile] ladiesbigbang! I made some big mistakes but I still got a significant chunk done and it felt good.

-I have filled twenty out of twenty-five squares on my first [community profile] kink_bingo card!!! I have until the end of September to cross off "silk, velvet, feathers, furs", "prostitution/sex work", "whipping/flogging", "obedience", and "consent play". I think it's kind of funny that I haven't come up with anything for consent play yet, considering how excited I was to get that square and the fact that half of my fills have been dubcon or noncon. I just haven't found anything that quite fits it in the way I want. (I thought about trying to do Gwen/Vivian with enthusiastic consent for the Happy Endings challenge at [ profile] summerpornathon but it didn't work out.) I had pornathon fics picked out that I wanted to podfic for both that and obedience, but the authors either never de-anoned or didn't answer my podfic permission requests, so I'm still looking. There's another piece I started writing for pornathon that involves prostitution, so I should try to sit down and make that work. Silk/velvet/feathers/furs is another one that seems like it should be easy but hasn't happened yet. And whipping/flogging is not really my kink and I don't have any ideas. So yeah, I would take suggestions for any of those five, particularly if you know of good, relatively short fics that ought to be podficced.

-I watched the first two episodes of Parks and Recreation last night and another this afternoon. I like the main character a lot and it often makes me laugh but more often just makes me very uncomfortable. If you would like to try to convince me to keep watching I will listen. I would also take recs for other shows that are streaming on Netflix or other places on the Internet, especially the half-hour funny kind that I can watch right before bed. What I would really like to watch is more Community. That's coming back soon, right?

I finished the first season of Mad Men a couple days ago and was going to try to hold off on diving in to the second, but I think I will probably cave tonight.
